I dined here with a friend when I was passing thru— it was very good— house made cheese, roasted beets were amazing and some of the best tempeh I have ever had—it was a replacement for the seitan— I will come back here again when...More

My husband and I always make reservations in advance to have dinner at Plant. The food is very good and I always feel like we get our money’s worth. After tonight, I am not sure we will be back. We ordered dessert and waited long...More

Somewhat pricy but worth the trip. A small restaurant where inventive vegan meals are served tastefully. We had to eat here more than once during our short stay in Asheville, NC.

It is one of the best restaurants I’ve been to! The home-made cheese and the beets are to die for; the salad is exquisite, and the chili con queso very good. For dessert, try the carrot cake!

What a place! The best meal I have had for a very long time! Everything we ordered was just awesome. The red beets, their home made cheese and carrot cake will make your day.

We’ve never eaten at a fully vegan restaurant before, but were blown away with the food, and drinks as well. Everything on our plates was so flavorful and unique. The plant cheese plate was really delicious and changed my mind about vegan cheese! My husband...More

One of the best vegetarian restaurants I've ever been to. Exceptional flavors prepared mindfully, beautifully, and creatively. You savor every bite. The only downside was the location on a busy road (thus the 4 stars, instead of 5).

I met up with a non- vegan friend for a girls trip in Asheville and Plant was on the top of my list of places to eat. We had such a wonderful experience! The server was super nice and knowledgeable and the food was SO,...More

Honestly, if each of us had ordered the magnificent [plant] Cheese platter and shared the plantains, we'd have been deeply satisfied. Both were standouts. One of our party had never eaten at a vegan restaurant or had cashew cheese, and she was wowed. We also...More

It wouldn't be my recommendation, but depends on how well-behaved the kids are. Plant is only open for dinner. Each dish is prepared individually so it can be 20+ minutes before your order arrives. I've never seen kids there... More
